Where to find Mortimer Adler's papers

Some of Mortimer Adler's papers have, over the years, been donated to the following institutions.
  1. University of Chicago. Its Library has posted this Guide to the Mortimer J. Adler Papers 1914-1995, listing the contents of 154 boxes. [revised link -ed.]
  2. Syracuse University. Its Library has posted An inventory of his papers, listing the contents of 16 boxes (10 linear feet).
  3. University of Texas at Austin. It has posted An Inventory of His Papers at the Harry Ransom Center, 3 boxes (1.26 linear feet). It notes that Adler materials are located in the other of the Center's manuscript collections:
  4. and in
  5. Indiana University, Bloomington. The Lilly Library Manuscript Collections include The Casady mss., ca. 1980-2001, 24 items
If other collections come to our attention, we hope to supplement this listing.


Update: The University of Chicago Library also posted a pdf of the Guide but it omits the last two boxes of files.

Update 2: Brought this to the Library's attention and it was quickly corrected.
